Topo Hands

click on the image to see more hands

Students created a line design of their hands using various colors of Sharpie and felt tip pens. Using the idea of a topographic map they tried to give the illusion of the hand being 3D. They added pattern to one of the hands.

6th Graders are getting ready to do their self portraits using a variety of images and mixed media.  We started by doing a black outline of themselves using a recycled laminate film over the xerox copy of themselves.  Leave it to kids, as we were passing out the images, several kids put the line drawing over their faces….messing around…and OHHHHHH   I had to go take a photo of the results.  Tomorrow I will be asking them,

 “Where do artists get their ideas?”
